The CE-232 is a point-to-point device that allows the extension of eight control signals far greater in distance than that of conventional RS-232. The CE-232 is terminated to a DCE type device (on the RS-232 port) at one end of the communication link. A cable, fully shielded, is then terminated to the CE-232 and attached to another CE-232 at the corresponding end. The CE-232 transmits an inverted RS-423 signal. This allows all control signals to be transmitted, bi-directionally for distances that may equal up to 5000 ft.

Located on the front panel of the CE-232 are eight (8) LED indicators. The PWR indicator, TXD, RXD, RTS, CTS, DCD, TXD and RXC which represent the RS-232 control signals. The control signal indicators act as a break out box in that installation and trouble shooting are a straight forward process. When properly terminated and with the presence of DATA, all control signals are active between the two connected CE-232s and the LEDs illuminated.

The CE-232 is housed in a sturdy metal enclosure and will provide in excess of 100,000 hours of reliable service.

The CE-232 has a three year warranty and a 24 hour turnaround on warranty repairs.
